“And then it started like a guilty thing
Upon a fearful summons.”
—William Shakespeare, Hamlet, Act 1, Scene 1
Dinesh D’Souza doesn’t think Brother O’s failed policies are the result of his being clueless in economic matters or his having a European socialist’s bent for redistributing wealth. D’Souza argues that Obama has incorporated his father’s anticolonial ideology and is out to destroy America, believing that America’s wealth came as the result of her invading, occupying, and looting the poor countries of Africa, Asia, and South America.
“The well-being and progress of Europe have been built up with the sweat and the dead bodies of Negroes, Arabs, Indians and the yellow races.”—Frantz Fanon, from The Wretched of the Earth
Obama’s father grew up during Africa’s struggle to be free of European rule, and Brother O saw his father’s anticolonialism as a great and noble cause. For D’Souza, Brother O’s book title is significant. He points out that the title is not dreams of my father, but it’s Dreams from My Father. In other words, Brother O’s not writing about his father’s dreams; he’s writing about dreams that he has incorporated from his father.
From a very young age and through his formative years, Obama learned to see America as a force for global domination and destruction. He came to view America’s military as an instrument of neocolonial occupation … [and] capitalism and free markets [as] … code words for economic plunder.—Dinesh D’Souza
According to D’Souza, Brother O’s worldview sees America as selfishly consuming the world’s resources and ruthlessly bullying and dominating the rest of the planet.
[A] Luo tribesman … is now setting the nation’s agenda through the reincarnation of his dreams in his son. … The invisible father provides the inspiration, and the son dutifully gets the job done. America today is governed by a ghost.—Dinesh D’Souza
